How do we introduce Bar Modelling, and how do we continue to use it as a valuable tool to solve problems?
This two part workshop explores the Bar Model approach to problem solving enabling delegates to gain a better understanding of what Bar Models do, & how they work.
In the first session, we concentrate on using bars mostly for additive reasoning & will introduce the part/whole model & the comparison model. The second session focusses on multiplicative reasoning & considers how bars support the understanding of multiplication, division & fractions.
This course should enable teachers to:
- See how Bar Models can be used across a wide range of concepts and topics;
- Understand that this approach gives pupils a powerful & adaptable strategy for solving increasingly difficult problems;
- Consider how Bar Models draw on the Concrete, Pictorial, Abstract approach used in mastery.
